Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa
(4/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Yanagawa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Yanagawa River Boat and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Say thank you at the end of 11 months, is still on the Japanese boat us down Duvet and I thought it's not cold, but it was comfortable. Was 70 minutes, but not boring. On the way there, so stay tuned in and looking at buying one is smart. Unfortunately, aboard our Asian based international by 80%, especially the first four upright bad manners, makes noise in the Boatman's voice is hard to hear, at the very least are served near the boat's position would still want me or care.  Boatman in elderly people to be careful detail in English, feel sorry for defects. We took advantage 'Yanagawa special surfacing ticket". In the Office next to the exit of Nishitetsu Fukuoka Station sells. Would recommend as very helpful, I was guided to the closed shop.  Steamed eel Seiro, disposable service almost all the staff.

  • Came here as part of Yanagawa Tokumori Ticket. Our boatman can speak limited Mandarin. He tried singing too but soon "ran out of gas". An experience that can be memorable. 
  • Iguchi's boatman was the best! Is a 40-minute short that is between. Crouch upon passing through the low bridge there is little thrill.
